Womens Golf Club Frequently Asked Questions
Are women’s golf clubs different from men’s?
Women’s golf clubs tend to be shorter and lighter than men’s golf clubs, but if you’re taller than 5 foot 9, you might want to opt for a men’s club to compensate for your height. Ladies’ golf clubs tend to sport graphite shafts because they’re lighter, so they don’t hamper swing speed. Women’s golf clubs are usually labelled as ‘L’, and they’re typically the most flexible. All of the clubs in a ladies golf club set, for example, will have flexible shafts so you can play your best game.
How long should women’s golf clubs be?
Women’s drivers are, typically, around 43 inches (or just over 1 metre) in length. This is because in general, women are shorter than men and therefore require a lighter shaft and slightly shorter club length. However, as aforementioned, if you’re over 5 foot 9, you may need ladies golf clubs that are slightly longer so you can still reach optimum swing speed and form. Each iron in a ladies iron set normally plays between 1 and 2 inches shorter than the equivalent iron found in a standard male set.
